Summary: When my HP printer finally gave out I bought this printer new. Printhead did not work right out of the box and had to get a replacement after being on the phone with Lexmark for over an hour so had to wait a few days to use my "new" printer.
Summary: The print quality of the Lexmark S605 is adequate, but the unit is noisy and slow. It has 4 ink wells, one black and three color. This morning I tried to print a document using 'black ink only' because I knew I was getting low on color.
Summary: So I have this bug going on with my S605. On the touch screen, I choose Scan>Scan to Computer> ... annnnnnnddd NOTHING! I get a message saying its "downloading scan applications from your computer". Well, for some reason the damn thing can't download the list.
Summary: I bought this printer in July 2010 as an upgrade for my Lexmark S405 that had trouble remaining in touch with my computer. I have had Lexmark and only Lexmark printers for the past 15 years. I was happy with my S605 until it said it "cannot communicate with the computer".
Summary: Challenges with Lexmark...for the three days (and 20 print pages) the S605 worked, it worked well but my first unit had problems with defective printhead and driver issues. Lexmark ultimately sent a replacement printer but it didn't come with print head or ink cartridges so effectively useless.
Summary: An hour after my first installation, an error message showed up for "Printhead Error". A step by step direction was given that basically instructed me to remove the printhead and re-insert it. Fine, I followed. After the restart, the same message showed up again.
Summary: Bought this unit in January, 2010. Only printed a few mostly black and white pages, and two pages of an application for a new passport that had a light blue background all over the place (but that's another letter).
Summary: it works fine. note: when registering it will ask you when you bought it, dont put when you ordered it online. put the day you're registering it because thats when the warranty begins and ends in three years. wifi is easy to set up the usb lets you print stuff from the thumb drive. its pretty cool.
Summary: I loved this printer from the moment I saw it in the store. It is a great printer except the tech support is lacking. The wireless didn't work when I installed the printer. I contacted tech support after I tried for a week myself to get the wireless to work.
